Is Your Pet Mighty Enough To Join The Pet Avengers?

Here is your chance for your pet to earn their keep in your home and make you famous. Okay, not really.

We've heard about the upcoming "Lockjaw And The Pet Avengers" mini-series.  Marvel has announced that you pet may have the chance to join Lockjaw and his new super team.  Marvel has set up a "Pet Avengers Flickr Group" where you can submit photos of your pets dressed as Marvel heroes.  If your pet has what it takes, they could be featured as Lockjaw's newest ally online.  You can even dress you pet up as a Marvel villain.  Just make sure no pets are harmed while taking a photo.  That can include the emotional embarrassment. 

Marvel is even offering "Pet Week" through Marvel Digital Comics.  They're offering a chance to check out your 'favorite' stories with Marvel's Mightiest animals for free.  You can read them here: http://www.marvel.com/news/comicstories.7514

You can read about Lockjaw, Redwing, Hairball, Lockheed and Frog Thor trying to save the planet in Lockjaw And The Pet Avengers #1 on May 13, 2009.  It's written by Chris Eliopoulos and drawn by Ig Guara.

If there were a super hero or villian with really bad breath, one of my dogs could easily make the cut. Her breathe could wilt a flower.

Frog Thor is Thor. Loki turned him into a frog once

I hope no one steals my idea for a rock wearing a cape before I get that picture up.

Can Lockjaw make his poop teleport?  Also,  when Lockjaw vomits, does he eat it again?  How about when he poops?  Hey, dogs do this sort of thing, but I know, Lockjaw isn't technically a dog....just curious.

On one hand this sounds lame-o but on the other, I think people and kids could get a kick out of it.

The cat in this picture kinda look like Streaky form Supergirl.  Too bad this is not a cross over. I mean hey. DC did an entire children's SHOW about "Super Pets" or something like that.

Sometime I forget that comics are for kids.......then Marvel reminds me.

lockheed is a good addition but seriously falcons, falcon can really do much in a fight

@Vance: unless the goldfish is amphibious theres no way for a goldfish to fight evil without getting out of his bowl
